    Just the title question alone is a stupid question! LOL!

    Anyway, is ISO the same thing as ASA?

    Thank you!

    ASA = American Standards Association
    ISO = International Standards Organization

    They are two different groups that set standards, and when it comes to rating film speed (or digital chip sensitivity), they mean the same thing.
